Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftswissenschaften für Ingenieure und Naturwissenschaftler


Over the recent years the blockchain technology has shook online entrepreneurial finance markets. With Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), Security Token Offerings (STOs) and more recently the rise of Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs), blockchain-based financing mechanisms and asset classes are experiencing accelerated innovation. Academic research has recently picked up on these developments, but various questions still need to be answered, which include (but are not limited to) "How does blockchain-based financing impact the entrepreneurial finance markets of the future?" ; "How do these forms of blockchain-financing differ from one another?" ; "What happened to ICO ventures after the hype from 2017-2019?" ; "Who are investors in token sales?", etc.

We are offering several Bachelor- and Master-Theses in the realm of blockchain-based financing. These can be either theoretical/conceptual or more technical and empirical theses. If this sounds interesting to you, please reach out!
